Billy Andrews: This local weather aficionado wrote 'Outstanding Weather in the Ark-La-Tex: An Incomplete History of Significant Weather Events.' Martha Holoubek Fitzgerald: This former writer and editor for The Shreveport Times wrote a book featuring her parents' courtship letters and a book about the history of Morris & Dickson Co.
Just one week ago. Feels like so much longer! Highlights from a great evening out with my girls, friends, designers, and models. So much planning and work goes into an event like this and I'm still amazed that I had a chance to design jewelry for some of the fabulous looks. Big shout out to @melanielscarlett @lookatcookie @violetvulpinedesigns @juliebluesmith @funkycolvmedina @the_autumnsarah @katy_larsen @ellebeedubyah @kkephart87 #ShrevepunkFashionShow#thegarnetgypsyshrevepunkcollection#cooldowntown

Cats love art, too! Khafre, the gallery cat, has already chosen his favorite in the Shreveport Art Club Spring Show. Adena Helm's "Treading Lightly" is mesmerizing! #fineart#cooldowntown#catsofinstagram

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It's easy, All you need is love ❤️ 🎶 #AllYouNeedisLove#Lyrics#graffitti#cooldowntown#shreveport#shrev
